The mission of KRQE Cares is to positively impact children in low income families throughout the state of New Mexico. New Mexico is ranked 48th in child poverty among U.S. states.
KRQE Cares has been investing in the lives of these children for over seven years. The Shoes for Kids, Food for Kids, and Books for Kids programs are making a big impact on students in Title 1 schools. We know that students have better attendance at school, class participation, confidence, and takes some stress off the families struggling to pay the bills when we invest in their lives as a community.
